Fred Berendse

Fred is a former NASA contractor and educator, having taught algebra, calculus-based AP physics, and engineering. He believes that all students are capable of growth in math and physics if they are given sufficient encouragement and expert guidance. He instills in students a mindset that mistakes and failure are valuable learning tools rather than a judgment of their intelligence. He spends much of his free time playing World of Warcraft and enjoying the company of his cocker spaniel, Molly.
